It’s time again for our PhotoRehab Cover Makeover Challenge. Lucile has set us a crazy challenge this week – the cover from a block of chocolate!!! Here is the original:


We laughed about this cover, it’s not so appealing although Lucile assures me that the contents are delicious 😉

I have to say, this sounded like a lot of fun and it was, although difficult to think of what to use at first. When I think of chocolate, I think rich and dark and decadent, so after lots of consideration and flipping through archived shots, I thought I would zoom in on one of my recent Dewy Gemstones shots and convert that to a cover.

 I took my original shot in Lightroom and rotated it to portrait and cropped to a 16:9 ratio which I think is more like the shape of a block of chocolate 🙂

Then I opened the photo in one of my favourite iPhone apps, Typic, and had some fun adding the blocks of colour and lettering. I discovered that there seems to be a limit in the number of text boxes you can add so I had to save the image halfway and reopen to add more text.

I may have accidentally borrowed the idea of dark purple from one of my favourite chocolate brands 😉  I honestly didn’t think anything of it until later…

Ok now it’s your turn – what’s your take on this cover makeover challenge?

  1. Yummy challenge! Funny how all those fair trade brands look so .. heu.. special. They should hire you head of the creative department, I bet they would sale much more. Will do my best to work on something this WE, but can’t guarantee anything yet. Except that I too will eat chocolate to get me in the creative mood 😉
